What is the Feldenkrais Method?
The Feldenkrais Method is at the leading edge of the emerging field of somatic education. Based on the work of Moshe Feldenkrais (1904 – 84) and influenced by his expertise in physics, engineering and judo, the Feldenkrais Method draws together both the science and the art of human movement. It is unique in that it is based on sound mechanical and neurological principles and yet is easily accessible through simple practical lessons.
Through its emphasis on experiential learning, the method offers a means to improve many aspects of everyday life — from sitting and walking more comfortably to performing a highly developed skill more efficiently, to easier interpersonal relations. Through exploring patterns of everyday movement, the Method encourages the discovery of new possibilities and choices. The Feldenkrais Method can be experienced in group classes in Awareness through Movement as well as in individual lessons in Functional Integration.
